Recently, a non-Board member attempted to nullify a Board vote. The vote was for approving a few hundred dollars to install internet access at our front entrance. It was well below our CCR-defined $-threshold for a capital expenditure. The Board approved it unanimously. She insisted that the vote was not valid because the vote did not specify where the money would come from (i.e., reserve fund or operating budget). Obviously it would come from the operating budget. The Board argued that the vote was valid and that the Treasurer and our community manager would figure out which “bucket” the funding should come from after the vote. She insisted that, to be valid, all votes must specify where the source $$$ will come from.
Was she right that, to be valid, the vote must first specify where the funding comes from?
